They were ordinary people. Some were never even mentioned by name. Yet they were all touched by Jesus. In this study guide, Carolyn Nystrom introduces you to the fascinating men and women of the New Testament. As you enter into their stories, you'll discover how you too can be touched by the Savior. This revised LifeGuide Bible Study features additional questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, together with expanded leader's notes and a "Now or Later" section in each study.

I will be using this for a small adult bible study at church. This series is an excellent way to introduce the subject to those not accustomed to regular bible study. The follow up will be to begin a more lengthy and detailed series. Read full review
